This home takes its inspiration from a simpler time. It harks back to the ruggedness, practicality and ethos of hard work of those who pioneered this region. With the character of an historic stone farm building that has been converted into a house, it sits in a vineyard on the banks of the Shotover with commanding views north across the river valley to Coronet Peak.
Only traditional building materials have been used – stone, rough sawn timber, iron, concrete – to create a unique spacious luxury home that is at the same time unpretentious, easy and comfortable.
Warmed through underfloor heating, a large open fireplace and the insulation of walls nearly 3 feet thick, the house gets all day sun, summer and winter, and is protected from the cold southerly by the hills directly behind.
Spectacular views from every window, no neighbours, and only the sound of the river and the odd jet boat to disturb the silence. Without apology there are no curtains to be seen. You wake up when nature intends you to.
Easy to think you are miles from anywhere in this magical part of God’s own country. Yet you are only 5 minutes from Frankton and the Queenstown airport.
